JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Rayne Perrywinkle, the mother of murdered 8-year-old Cherish Perrywinkle, was Baker Acted Sunday, allegedly for trying to hurt herself.

According to a police report obtained by First Coast News, officers were summoned by boyfriend Aharon Pearson, who told police, "ever since Cherish was killed, she has lost her desire to live and has been acting out in violent rages."

Pearson told officers that Perrywinkle had been throwing plates and cups against the wall, and that he was injured by the flying glass, according to the report. 

Officers took Perrywinkle into custody after she allegedly threatened to kill herself.

Rayne Perrywinkle had been scheduled to go before Circuit Court Judge David Gooding Tuesday, part of a series of court appearances attempting to regain custody of her two other daughters, ages six and four. The girls were taken by the state Department of Children and Families in early July.

Pearson told First Coast news he plans on asking for sole custody of their children during the hearing at 1:30 Tuesday.

Pearson says he wants things to work out with Rayne, but she has turned this in to "a war".

Rayne Perrywinkle has been released from the Baker Act, according to Pearson.
